What would a mini-meal consist of?
Asked by kappamater on Mar 20, 2009 in Nutrition




Answer

Think of a mini-meal as about one half of a normal meal for a particular individual.  Like a major meal, it contains several food groups, or least the nutrients they provide.  A mini-meal may consist of cereal milk and fruit, a waffle with peanut butter and banana, a frozen entrée, a whole or half sandwich, a meal bar and a shake, a smoothie, or last night’s leftovers.  People eat mini-meals, instead of two or three larger meals, as a way to feel full longer and to stay energized all day long.  Compare this 1500 calorie meal plan with three meals a day to another with six “mini-meals” a day.
